Kolloq. Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez, topic: Dissecting the Mobile Ecosystem with the Lumen Privacy Monitor

Wednesday, 27th of September 2017, 11:00 am FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), talk will be held in English

Abstract

As a society we have come to rely upon our mobile phones for myriad daily tasks. It is striking how little insight we, as mobile users and researchers, have into the operation and performance of our devices and network, into how (or whether) mobile apps protect the information we entrust to them, and with whom they share it. The research community (including the speaker) have energetically used a variety of approaches to gain empirical understanding of the mobile device/network ecosystem; however, these techniques have had to make trade-offs that affect either the scale, scope or granularity of measurements.

This talk describes how we leverage ideas from this prior work to design and develop the Lumen Privacy Monitor. The talk will demonstrate its utility to researchers and average users alike by providing case studies on mobile traffic characterization, identification of privacy risks inflicted by mobile apps, and perform network performance measurements.

Kolloq. Prof. Rolf Stadler, topic: Data-driven network and cloud engineering

Friday, 14th of July 2017, 10:00 am FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching)

Abstract

We start with discussing the opportunities of using machine learning for network and cloud engineering and operation. We then focus on the specific problem of KPI estimation and present an approach that is based based upon statistical learning, whereby the behavior of a system is learned from observations. Following this approach, we collect device statistics from servers and switches on a testbed and use regression techniques to predict client-side service metrics for a video service and a key-value store. One surprising finding is that these service metrics can be predicted quite accurately using network device statistics alone.

Kolloq. Prof. Tanja Zseby, topic: Stealthy Communication Methods: Generation and Detection of Covert Channels in TCP/IP Traffic

Monday, 15th of May 2017, 2:00 pm FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), talk will be held in English

Abstract

Covert channels conceal the information transfer between communication partners by hiding it in an existing unsuspicious data exchange. In TCP/IP traffic there are many possibilities to hide information in header fields or packet timing. Such techniques can be used by sophisticated malware for clandestine data exfiltration or to establish hidden command and control structures. The detection of covert communication is very challenging if the hidden data replicates statistical properties of classical TCP/IP communication.

In this talk a set of methods, the DAT (Descriptive Analytics of Traffic) detectors, for detecting covert channels in TCP/IP traffic are introduced. The detectors are based on lightweight statistical analysis methods and provide a collection of technique to assess the probability of covert communication in a given traffic trace. The DAT detectors are also used in the TU Wien network steganography lab as part of the Network Security Advanced class. The lab material (exercises, data, grading) is made available to other lecturers in the area of network security and data analysis.

Kolloq. Ralph Holz, topic: Consensus and the network - research directions in blockchain

Friday, 3rd of March 2017, 2:00 pm FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), talk will be held in English

Abstract

Over the last six years, blockchains have developed into a 'mainstream' technology that entire industry sectors are talking about. The latest generation even supports smart contracts - programs that are executed by all participants and that may govern everything from simple transactions to the setup of organisations. Taking a closer look, however, we find that there is very little deployment beyond the two most prominent examples, Bitcoin and Ethereum. In this talk, we are going to look at some of the reasons: the problem of dependability and abortion of transactions, which is crucial for enterprises; the influence of the underlying network structure on transaction execution; and the problem of exploitable smart contracts. Correspondingly, we discuss some research directions that could prove fruitful in a number of systems, blockchains or beyond.

Kolloq. Jörg Widmer, topic: Efficient Networking in Millimeter Wave Bands

Friday, 27th of November 2015, 10:00 am, FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching)

Abstract

State-of-the-art wireless communication already operates close to Shannon capacity and one of the most promising options to further increase data rates is to increase the communication bandwidth. Very high bandwidth channels are only available in the extremely high frequency part of the radio spectrum, the millimeter wave band (mm-wave). Upcoming communication technologies, such as IEEE 802.11ad, are already starting to exploit this part of the radio spectrum to achieve data rates of several GBit/s. However, communication at such high frequencies also suffers from high attenuation and signal absorption, often restricting communication to line-of-sight (LOS) scenarios and requiring the use of highly directional antennas. This in turn requires a radical rethinking of wireless network design. On the one hand side, such channels experience little interference, allowing for a high degree of spatial reuse and potentially simpler MAC and interference management mechanisms. On the other hand, such an environment is extremely dynamic and channels may appear and disappear over very short time intervals, in particular for mobile devices. This talk will highlight some of the challenges of and possible approaches for networking in the mm-wave band.

Kolloq. Prof. James Sterbenz, topic: Multilevel Resilient Topology, Transport and Routing for the Future Internet

Wednesday, October 7h 2015, 15:00 pm, FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching)

Abstract

As the Internet becomes increasingly important to all aspects of society, the consequences of disruption are increasingly severe. Thus it is critical to increase the resilience and survivability of the future networks in general, and the Internet in particular. We define resilience as the ability of the network to provide desired service even when the network is challenged by attacks, large-scale disasters and other failures. Resilience subsumes the disciplines of survivability, fault-tolerance, disruption-tolerance, traffic-tolerance, dependability, performability and security. This presentation will provide a brief introduction to the disciplines and challenges to network resilience and to our ResiliNets strategy for resilient network design. Then this presentation will describe the complex multilevel structure of the Internet topology, along with complex-systems analysis and heuristics to improve infrastructure resilience under cost constraints. Then this presentation will describe ongoing work in the design and analysis of a new composable, cross-layered resilient transport (ResTP) and geodiverse multipath routing protocol (GeoDivRP). These protocols are designed to are being developed to provide resilience and survivability in the face of targeted attacks and large-scale disasters to the network infrastructure.

Kollog. Prof. Martin Reisslein, topic: Recent Advances in Access and Sensor Networking

Thursday, 23rd of July 2015, 14:00 pm, FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching)

Abstract

In this presentation, I will give an overview of recent advances in access and sensor networking in my group at ASU. In the area of access networks involving an optical fiber component, we have recently completed extensive studies on passive optical networks (PONs) as well as fiber-wireless (FiWi) access networks. Presently, we are examining the combination of high-speed PON access networks with slower-speed digital subscriber line (DSL) networks.

In the area of purely wireless access networks, we have analyzed the connection establishment in LTE-A networks. We found that for access systems with a long timeout and high barring probability, the numbers of user equipment (UE) nodes participating in random access contention in successive slots tend to Poisson process, irrespective of the arrival process (e.g., even for Markov Modulated Poisson Process arrivals).

In the area of sensor networks, we are working on developing a complete video sensor network solution ranging from the sensor node platform to the application layer streaming protocol. I will briefly outline a novel Wireless Sensor Node Platform (WSNP) approach to Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH).

Kolloq. Jörg Liebeherr, topic: Adaptive Protocols for Adaptive Networks

22nd of July 2015, 12:00, FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), this talk will be held in English

Abstract

Self-organizing networks have emerged as a powerful paradigm for providing network services. Unlike traditional infrastructure-based networks, self-organizing networks are formed and operated in a fully distributed manner, and do not rely on centralized mechanisms for network formation, management, or operation. Compared to conventional networks, self-organizing networks are better suited to adapt to changes of network topology, traffic mix, and service requirements. This talk will make a case that self-organizing networks are suitable to dynamically adapt network services offered to applications. We present our recent efforts on developing mechanism to deploy customizable data delivery services. In our approach, a data delivery service is expressed in terms of an XML specification, which defines a finite-state machine for the service. Network nodes dynamically load a service specification and instantiate finite-state machines on-demand without the need to update the protocol implementation. An evaluation of these mechanisms in the HyperCast overlay middleware, sheds light on the performance tradeoffs of the approach.

Kolloq. Deep Medhi, topic: Optimal Standby Virtual Routers Selection for Node Failures in a Virtual Network Environment

13.3.2014 14: FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching). This talk will be held in English

Abstract

Network virtualization allows flexibility to configure virtual networks in a dynamic manner. In such a setting, to provide resilient services to virtual networks, we consider the situation where the substrate network provider wants to have standby virtual routers ready to serve the virtual networks in the event of a failure. Such a failure can affect one or more virtual routers in multiple virtual networks. The goal of our work is to make the optimal selection of standby virtual routers so that virtual networks can be dynamically reconfigured back to their original topologies after a failure. We present an optimization formulation and a heuristic for this problem. By considering a number of factors, we present numerical studies to show how the optimal selection is affected, and the results showed that the proposed heuristic's performance was close to the optimization model when there are sufficient standby virtual routers for each virtual networks and the substrate nodes have capability to support multiple standby virtual routers to be in service concurrently. We also report on an experimental study with a wide-area virtual network platform.

Kolloq. Dr. Pavel Laskov, topic: Detection of Advanced Persistent Threats

10.11.2014, 14:00, FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching). This talk will be held in English

Abstract

Many recent high-profile security incidents have been categorized as "Advanced Persistent Threats" (APT). Their characteristic features include exploitation of previously unknown vulnerabilities and sophisticated social engineering carefully tailored to a specific recipient. To mitigate the growing risk of APT attacks arising from the economic and political motivation, novel detection methodology must be developed to complement the traditional signature-based techniques. In this talk, I will review the key features of APT and discuss the technical challenges arising in their detection. In particular, I will focus on methods for retrospective identification of 0-day attacks and evasion-resistant detection of malicious PDF documents commonly used for delivery of APT attacks. As an outlook, I will discuss potential architectures for security products which should provide adequate protection against APT.

Dimitri Papadimtriou "Analytical methods in system analysis"

18.9.2014, 2:00 pm, FMI 03.05.033 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), this talk will be held in English Abstract: Predictive simulations provide insight into the physics that drive complex systems enabling identification of key mechanisms and allows for rigorous and robust optimization/design. However, predictive simulation requires careful assessment of all sources of numerical errors (discretization, resolution, etc.) and uncertainty (sampling, model parameters and equations, etc.) in particular, when aleatory (inherent to the variability present in system and its surroundings) and irreducible. Uncertainty propagation methods quantifies uncertainties in system output from all sources of input uncertainty by means of computational model (forward uncertainty propagation), determines which uncertainties contribute the most to output uncertainties (sensitivity analysis) and characterizes uncertainty. In turn, uncertainty quantification assists in model prediction (interpolation, extrapolation, etc.) and thus decision making. In this context, validation (process of determining the degree to which a model is an accurate representation of the real world for) of computational models for establishing confidence in model predictions plays a fundamental role. While predictive methods are mostly based on sampling, this talk investigates the use of analytical methods (such as reliability methods) to compute the probability of failure of structural systems.

Kolloq. Dr. Paulo Mendes, topic: Impact of Human Behavior on Social Opportunistic Forwarding

22.7.2014, 2:00 pm, FMI 00.12.019 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), this talk will be held in English Abstract: The current Internet design is not capable of supporting communications in environments characterized by very long delays and frequent network partitions. To allow devices to communicate in such environments, delay-tolerant networking solutions have been proposed by exploiting opportunistic message forwarding, with limited expectations of end-to-end connectivity and node resources. However, such proposals present two major drawbacks: first, they ignore the impact that human behavior has on the dynamics of the network; and second, they focus on low density scenarios. This talk presents a study about the impact that human behavior has on opportunistic forwarding showing: i) that performance can be improved by taking the dynamics of the network into account; and ii) to show that delay-tolerant networking can also be used to reduce communication costs in networks with high density by considering the users' behavior. Bio: Paulo Mendes is the vice-director of the Cognition and People centric computing Research Center (COPELabs) at University Lusofona, where he is associated professor, and director of the Ph.D program on Informatics - New Media and Pervasive Systems (NEMPS). In 2004 he got his Ph.D. degree in Informatics Engineering from the University of Coimbra, having performed his Ph.D. thesis work as a visiting Scholar at Columbia University, New York. Before COPELABS, Paulo was a senior researcher at NTT DOCOMO Euro-labs for 4 years, and a research coordinator at the portuguese research lab INESCTEC for 3 years. The publication record includes over 100 scientific articles, 14 international patents, and contributions of IETF.

Kolloq. Rebekah Overdorf, topic: Blogs, Comments, and Twitter Feeds: A Study of Domain Adaptation in Stylometry

15.7.2014, 2:00 pm, FMI 03.07.023 (MI-Building, Campus Garching), this talk will be held in English

Abstract: Stylometry is a form of authorship attribution that relies on the linguistic information found in documents. This paper focuses on the cross-domain case where the known and suspect documents differ in what setting they were created in. These domains include Twitter feeds, blog entries, Reddit comments, and emails. We determine that state-of-the-art methods in stylometry do not perform as well in cross-domain situations as they do in in-domain situations and propose a method that increases the accuracy in the cross-domain setting. We are able to improve the accuracy of cross-domain stylometry to as high as 80%. Being able to identify authors across domains facilitates linking identities across the Internet making this a key security and privacy concern; users can take other measures to ensure their anonymity, but due to their unique writing style, they may not be as anonymous as they believe.

HybridNN: An accurate and scalable network location service based on the inframetric model

Abstract: Locating servers that have shortest interactive delay towards an Internet host provides an important service for large-scale latency sensitive networked applications, such as VoIP, online network games, or interactive network services on the cloud. Existing algorithms assume that the delay space is a metric space, which implies that the delay between two nodes is symmetric and the triangle inequality holds. In practice, the delay space is not metric, which lowers the accuracy of metric-based algorithms. We develop a new scheme whose theoretical foundation is based on the inframetric model, which has weaker assumptions than the metric model. We prove that the location requests can be completed efficiently if the delay space exhibits modest inframetric dimensions, which we can confirm empirically. Finally, we propose HybridNN (Hybrid N earest Service N ode Location) that finds the closest service node accurately thanks to the inframetric model and scalably by combining delay predictions with direct probes to a pruned set of neighbors. Simulation results show that HybridNN locates in nearly all cases the true nearest service nodes. Experiments on PlanetLab show that with modest query overhead and maintenance traffic HybridNN can provide accurate nearest service nodes that are close to optimal. This is joint work with Y. Fu and Y. Wang from National University of Defense Technology, Hunan province, 410073, China Bio: Ernst Biersack studied computer science at the Technische Universität München and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received the Dipl. Infom. (M.S.) and Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D.) degrees in computer science from the Technische Universität München, and the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from the University of Nice, France. From March 1989 to February 1992, he was a Member of Technical Staff with the Computer Communications Research District of Bell Commu- nications Research, Morristown, US.

Talk by Richard Stallman| Jul 11 18:00 | MW 2001

Richard Stallman will be visiting us in Munich in mid-July.On July 11th at 18:00 he will give a public talk in English on "Copyright vs. Community" at the Technische Universität München.

The talk will be in the "Rudolf-Diesel" Hörsal "MW 2001" on the Campus Garching. The talk is open to the public and attendance is free. Registration is not required, but you can register with the Free Software Foundation for notifications about related activities here.

Summary

Copyright developed in the age of the printing press, and was designed to fit with the system of centralized copying imposed by the printing press. But the copyright system does not fit well with computer networks, and only draconian punishments can enforce it. The global corporations that profit from copyright are lobbying for draconian punishments, and to increase their copyright powers, while suppressing public access to technology.

This applies to scientific publishing too: scholarly articles must permit redistribution and remix for the good of science. We must strip the journal publishers of the power to prevent this.

If we seriously hope for copyright to serve its only legitimate purpose --to promote progress, for the benefit of the public-- then we must make changes in the other direction.

About the Speaker

Richard Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of the GNU operating system in 1984. GNU is free software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute it, with or without changes. The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace Hopper Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award, and the the Takeda Award for Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several honorary doctorates.

Gastvortrag von Prof. Wolfinger am 17.06.10 um 17:15

Es spricht:       Prof. Bernd Wolfinger Universität Hamburg

Termin: Donnerstag, den 17.06.10 um 17:15 Ort:    Raum MI Hörsaal 2 (MI-Gebäude, Campus Garching) Thema:  Performance Engineering and Traffic Engineering for Multimedia Applications in the Internet and in Mobile Networks

Abstract: Performance Engineering of computer and communication networks, among others, comprises practices, methods and tools which can be applied in order to design, implement and operate networks and their applications in such a way that given performance and Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements are fulfilled. ‘Traffic Engineering’ for networks – in its broader sense – comprises formal specification, measurement, modelling, characterization and manipulation (routing, traffic shaping,  etc) as well as the generating of traffic loads in networks. Performance engineering and traffic engineering are particularly relevant in the context of the Internet and of mobile networks, more so, if those networks are used for real-time communications. The talk summarizes the long-term experiences in traffic and performance engineering within the Telecommunications and Computer Networks Division at Hamburg University. In particular, emphasis will be given to our recent research results related to measurement-based load characterization of audio and video streams, to formal load specification and analytical modelling of load transformations (stochastic load transformations as they are currently studied within the DFG project LUPUS) as well as to the elaboration of two powerful performance and traffic engineering tools: a distributed load generator for multimedia traffic in service-integrated networks and a network emulator to reflect the packet delay and loss behaviour of, possibly interconnected, computer and communication networks. A case study will be presented to illustrate the broad applicability of our load generator (UniLoG) and network emulator (NetEmu) prototypes. These experiments will also show that valid QoS-related studies for distributed real-time applications can be flexibly supported by a combined usage of both, the network emulator and the load generator tool. With our approach the strict separation between network-oriented and application-oriented performance studies is no longer required – an important step towards a realistic QoS evaluation from an end-user’s point of view. Bio: Prof. Dr. Bernd E. Wolfinger has been with the Computer Science Department of Hamburg University since 1981, where he is presently heading the Telecommunications and Computer Networks (TKRN) Subdivision. Dr. Wolfinger has obtained degrees from Université Claude-Bernard, Lyon/F. (Maîtrise, ‘74), University of Karlsruhe/D (Diploma, Mathematics ‘75; Ph.D., Comp. Sc. ’79). He has spent long-term sabbaticals at IBM Research / Yorktown, N.Y. (‘85), Internat. Computer Science Institute / Berkeley, Ca. (’91,’96), as well as at Université P. et M. Curie, LIP 6, Paris (’01, ‘06). Professor Wolfinger is active in Networking research since 1975, has been responsible for numerous conference organizations and has served on a large variety of TPCs. He has been editor of books and special issues of journals; he has published more than 100 papers in areas such as High-speed & Wireless Networks and Real-time (audio/video) Communications as well as in Modeling (Simulation & Queueing Networks) , Measurement, Traffic Engineering, Performance & Reliability Evaluation, QoS Management and eLearning.

Gastvortrag von Dr. Henning Sanneck am 08.02.2010 um 14:15

Es spricht:       Dr. Henning Sanneck Research Manager OAM Automation Research, Technology & Platforms Nokia Siemens Networks GmbH&Co KG, München

http://sanneck.net Termin: Montag, den 08.02.2010, 14:15 Uhr Ort:    Raum MI Multimediaraum 00.08.038 (MI-Gebäude, Campus Garching, Finger 8, Erdgeschoss) Thema:  Mobile Network Management Research

Due to the high cost pressure put on mobile network operators, the efficient Management of Mobile Networks (Deployment, Operation, Maintenance) has gained a lot of importance and visibility. Particularly automation solutions ("Self Organizing Networks") are considered to be a key building block for LTE networks by operators and network equipment vendors. Based on an overview on mobile networks and their management, a concrete example (self-configuration of basestations) will be discussed, showing the opportunities and challenges in this area. Additionally the presentation gives some insights into the product development process (idea -> concept -> product-feature) and the tasks of a research group within a large network equipment manufacturer.

Bio: Henning Sanneck is Research Manager at Nokia Siemens Networks in Munich where he is leading projects on Self-Organizing Networks for LTE.

Dr. Henning Sanneck studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. He was a Visiting Student (ERASMUS scholarship) at the University of Nantes, France, in 1993. After receiving his Diploma in 1995, he joined GMD Fokus (now: Fraunhofer Fokus) in Berlin. At Fokus, Dr. Sanneck worked as a Researcher in the area of Quality-of-Service (QoS) support for Real-Time Services in IP-based networks. He received his Dr.-Ing. (PhD) degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Berlin with a thesis on Voice over IP QoS in 2000. In 2001 Dr. Sanneck joined Siemens - Mobile Networks in Munich, working as a Senior Research Engineer on cross-layer design for IP-based Radio Access Networks (RANs), Software Technologies for Mobile Networks and Technology Management.

TUM Informatik I8-Sonderkolloquium mit James Sterbenz am 05.10.09

E I N L A D U N G

       zu einem TUM Informatik I8-Sonderkolloquium: Es spricht:       Prof. James P.G. Sterbenz, Ph.D. The University of Kansas, U.S.A. http://www.ittc.ku.edu/~jpgs Termin: Montag, den 05.10.09, 14 Uhr Ort:    Raum MI Besprechungsraum Informatik8 03.05.033 (MI-Gebäude, Campus Garching, 3. OG, Finger 5) Thema:  Resilience, Survivability, and Heterogeneity in the Postmodern Internet James P.G. Sterbenz Abstract Society increasingly relies on computer networks in general, and the Internet in particular. Consumers rely on networks for access to information and services, personal finance, and for communication with others. The Internet has become indispensable to the routine operation of businesses and to the global economy. The military depends on network centric operations and warfare. Governments depend on networks for their daily operation, service delivery, and response to natural disaster and terrorist attacks. Furthermore, the Internet is being used in ways not anticipated by its designers and evolution of the protocols, in particular: TCP, IP, BGP, DNS, and HTTP. Emerging application paradigms and mashups coupled with usage scenarios that are increasingly disconnected and mobile challenge the current architecture. This has been recognised by research and development initiatives including NSF FIND (Future Internet Design), GENI (Global Environments for Network Innovation), and EU FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation).  This presentation will focus on two key aspects of the future Internet: resilience and heterogeneity. Resilience: The consequences to disruption of the Internet are increasingly severe, and threaten the lives of individuals, the financial health of business, and the economic stability and security of nations and the world. With the increasing importance of the Internet, so follows it's attractiveness as a target from bad guys: recreational and professional crackers, terrorists, and from information warfare. The EU FIRE ResumeNet project is exploring resilience and survivability as critical properties of the future Internet architecture. Heterogeneity: New applications and usage scenarios stress the Internet architecture that has evolved assuming a stable wired infrastructure. While the current hourglass waist provided by IP, DNS, and BGP has served the Internet well, the demand for heterogeneity stresses the least-common-denominator of the waist. The NSF FIND Postmodern Internet project (PoMo) is exploring heterogeneity as a first-class citizen in the Postmodern Internet, in which a new internetworking protocol serves as the glue for heterogeneous realms with explicit support for trust and policy boundaries. The Great Plains Environment for Network Innovation (GpENI) is constructing part of the GENI infrastructure, which will in part be used as a platform to test and evaluate ResumeNet and PoMo architecture. Additionally, research in two domain-specific realms will be described. Highly Dynamic Airborne Networking Highly dynamic mobile wireless networks present unique challenges to end-to-end communication, particularly caused by the time varying connectivity of high-velocity nodes combined with the unreliability of the wireless communication channel. Addressing these challenges requires the design of new protocols and mechanisms specific to this environment. Our research explores the tradeoffs in the location of functionality such as error control and location management for high-velocity multihop airborne-sensor networks and presents cross-layer optimizations between the MAC, link, network, and transport layers to enable a domain specific network architecture, which provides high reliability for telemetry applications. We have designed new transport, network, and routing protocols for this environment: TCP-friendly AeroTP, IP-compatible AeroNP, and AeroRP, which show significant performance improvement over the traditional TCP/IP/MANET protocol stack. Weather Disruption-Tolerant Millimeter-Wave Mesh Networking Millimeter-wave networks have the potential to supplement fiber in providing high-speed Internet access, as well as backhaul for emerging mobile 3G and 4G services. However, due to the high frequency of operation (70-90 GHz), such networks are highly susceptible to attenuation from rain. A resilient mesh topology with cross-layering between the physical and network layer has the potential to self-optimise under the presence of unstable links. Our research investigates mechanisms to overcome the disruptive effects of rain storms on network connectivity and service reliability. We propose two novel domain-specific predictive routing algorithms: P-WARP that uses real-time radar data to dynamically reroute traffic in advance of link failures, as well as a modified link-state algorithm XL-OSPF that uses cross-layering to instantaneously react to link failures. Simulations evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms based on data from real storms in the Midwest US. Bio Dr. James P.G. Sterbenz is Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and on staff at the Information & Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas, and is a Visiting Professor of Computing in InfoLab 21 at Lancaster University in the UK.

Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Jörn Altmann am 20.07. um 13:00

Es spricht:       Prof. Dr. Jörn Altmann Seoul National University, South Korea http://www.my-groups.de/altmann/?page_id=19 Termin: Montag, den 20.07.09, 13 Uhr Ort:    Raum MI Seminarraum 03.07.023 (MI-Gebäude, Campus Garching, 3. OG, Finger 7) Thema:  Capacity Planning for Cloud Computing Resources Due to the few options of computing resources currently available in the existing market, capacity planning is simple to perform. However, envisioning a market for commercial computing resources as part of a Cloud computing environment, capacity planning will become more complex due to the availability of many different resource types at variable prices. In this situation, the user will require support for handling the capacity planning process and for making use of Cloud computing in a cost-effective manner. The support could come from an online, stand-alone Capacity Planning Service, enabling companies to outsource their capacity planning task. This talk describes the Cloud Capacity Planning Service and demonstrates the workings of the service. This work on capacity planning has been partly performed within the EC-funded project GridEcon, Grid Economics and Business Models. GridEcon introduced the design and implementation of the GridEcon Marketplace, which not only provides the market mechanism for trading computing resources on a pay-per-use basis but also provides an environment for value-added support services for using the Cloud computing market more efficiently. The Marketplace and market mechanism were validated by using the GridEcon Platform, which is a service-oriented platform for composing market scenarios. The talk will also give an overview about the GridEcon Project and its Marketplace.

Promotionsvortrag von Michael Kleis

Im Rahmen seines Promotionsverfahrens hält Herr Dipl.-Math. Michael Kleis am Montag, 30.03.2009, 11.00 Uhr, im Raum 01.07.023, MI-Gebäude, Boltzmannstr. 3 in Garching einen Vortrag zum Thema "CSP, Cooperative Service Provisioning using Peer-to-Peer Principles" Betreuer: Prof. Georg Carle

Zusammenfassung

Current challenges for Internet service provisioning include incorporating an increasing number of wireless and wired network technologies, a variety of heterogeneous end user terminals and the requirements of delay and bandwidth sensitive multimedia services. There are two main obstacles for flexible media provisioning on top of today's Internet. First the end-to-end networking paradigm which is based on a service and data unaware transport, and secondly a lack of high level communication abstractions. To address the first point this thesis proposes a methodology to integrate the Network Provider into the process of service provisioning. The proposed cooperative service provisioning (CSP) demands an interaction between Service Provider, Network Provider and Client. CSP can be applied to Provider as well as Peer-to-Peer scenarios. To address the second point, the thesis adopts a Service Overlay approach. It is studied how the principle of Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) can be extended to realise a distributed control plane for a decentral and reactive creation of Service Overlays. As a prerequisite, a methodology to reduce Service Overlay related routing problems to search problems is developed. With regard to the required Quality of Service (QoS) measurements, the thesis focuses on scalable and time efficient estimation techniques. As a result, two new delay prediction schemes have been developed which improve estimation accuracy when compared to the state of the art. Furthermore, a novel approach to bandwidth estimation is investigated. It combines methods from landmark based delay estimation with a transformation step and has favourable estimation accuracy.

Talk 1: On Security in Ad Hoc Networks Abstract: Access control concerns in MANETs are very serious and considered as a crucial challenge for operators who prospects to employ unrivaled capabilities of such networks for different applications. We propose a novel hierarchical distributed AAA architecture for proactive link state routing protocols notably OLSR . This proposal contains a lightweight and secure design of an overlay authentication and authorization paradigm for mobile nodes as well as a reliable accounting system to enable operators to charge nodes based on their connection duration time. We also suggest a hierarchical distributed AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting) server architecture with resource and location aware election mechanism. Moreover, this proposal mitigates the OLSR security issues  noticeably and eventually defines a node priority-based quality of service. Dr. Hakima CHAOUCHI is associate professor at the Telecommunication Institute in France. She received her PhD in 2004 in telecommunications and networking.

She recently co-organized the first and the second workshop in mobile and wireless network security (MWNS 2008, MWNS 2009) and is a member of several technical program committees. Talk 2: Wife: Wireless Indoor Positioning Fingerprint based Evaluation Abstract: Location awareness of a user or device has always been considered as a key element for enhancing network performance and improving user experience by enabling innovative location-based services. In this paper, we present WIFE (Wireless Indoor positioning based on Finger- print Evaluation), a user-based location determination system which is based on the received Signal Strength (SS) received from the surrounding Access Points (APs) inside a building. We focus on a WiFi environment for its low cost and ease of deployment and study Fingerprint-based deterministic techniques for their simplicity and reduced processing time and resource requirements. We first address the inherent impairments of an indoor environment and then describe our proposed methodology for mitigating them. Apostolia Papapostolou is a second year Ph.D. candidate at the Telecom Institute in South of Paris in France.

Weihnachtsfeier 2008, 18.12.2008

TUM Informatik-Sonderkolloquium mit Stephan Heckmüller am 10.12.08 um 13 Uhr in MI 01.06.011

Gastvortrag von Herrn Dipl-Inf. Stephan Heckmüller (TKRN, Universitiät Hamburg) zum Thema "Lasttransformation in Rechnernetzen und ihre Invertierung".

Zeit: Mittwoch, 10.12.08, 13:00 Uhr Ort: Raum MI 01.06.011

Heutige Rechnernetze werden von einer Vielzahl von netzbasierten Anwendungen genutzt, die Verkehr mit teilweise stark unterschiedlichen Eigenschaften induzieren. Diese Eigenschaften werden darüber hinaus innerhalb des Netzes durch eine Vielzahl von Verarbeitungsvorgängen modifiziert. Um trotz der Komplexität des resultierenden, heterogenen Verkehrs-Mixes realistische Leistungsbewertungen vornehmen zu können, ist eine valide Charakterisierung und Modellierung des Verkehrs unverzichtbar. Im Rahmen des Vortrags werden insbesondere die Einflüsse der Verarbeitungsvorgänge innerhalb des typischen Protokollstapels heutiger Rechnernetze betrachtet. Die hier erfolgenden Modifikationen der Lasteigenschaften bezeichnen wir als Lasttransformationen. Die Berücksichtigung dieser Transformationen erlaubt die Modellierung von Lasten an tieferen Schnittstellen aufbauend auf der ursprünglichen Lastcharakterisierung und den Eigenschaften des spezifischen Transformationsvorgangs. Der Vortrag befasst sich zunächst mit der Modellierung solcher Lasttransformationen als Abbildungen auf Batch Markovian Arrival Processes (BMAPs). Neben der Vorstellung des grundsätzlichen Konzeptes wird auf die bisher betrachteten Lasttransformationen eingegangen. Insbesondere wird hierbei eine Transformation, welche den Einfluss eines Token-Bucket-Moduls modelliert, näher betrachtet. Mit Hilfe einer Fallstudie wird die erfreulich hohe Genauigkeit der entwickelten Transformationen aufgezeigt. Neben der Vorhersage von Lasteigenschaften nach der Transformation ist die Invertierung von Lasttransformationen ebenfalls von Interesse. Dies gilt insbesondere dann, wenn Lasten nur an tieferliegenden Schnittstellen innerhalb des Protokollstapels beobachtbar sind und Eigenschaften an höheren Schnittstellen rekonstruiert werden sollen. Potentielle Anwendungsgebiete umfassen Anwendungsklassifikation, Angriffserkennung und Lastmodellierung für nicht beobachtbare Schnittstellen. Es werden erste Ergebnisse bezüglich der Rekonstruktion von Längeneigenschaften und von zeitlichem Verhalten präsentiert.
